Ruto on The Spot as Hundreds of West Pokot Bodaboda Riders Stage Demonstrations Over Unpaid Dues

Hundreds of boda boda riders from West Pokot County have called upon Deputy President William Ruto to intervene after failing to get funds he promised them during his tour in the county on 21st of this month.

Speaking to the media according to a report by NTV, the riders say that they are aware that the DP left some money for escort services they offered him during the day, but they could not ascertain who was given to share out the funds, further blaming the coordinators of UDA party in the area.

Led by their chairperson from Chepareria Joseph Loritol, the riders also dismissed allegations that Ruto had offered some money that purchased at least 19 bikes for a certain sacco, terming the remarks as fake.

"We want to tell Deputy President William Ruto wherever he is today, that we used our own fuel that day, we escorted him wherever he went using theses motorbikes which we have acquired through loans, and by the end of the day we did not see any fuel, our children even slept hungry that day," said one of the riders.
